Research overview

Dr. Gamage's research interests include, but not limitted to the following areas:

  • Radiation Detection and Instrumentation
  • Real-time Digital Radiation Imaging
  • Energy Management in Smart Grid
  • Smart Grid Security and Resiliency


Dr Kelum Gamage received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Electrical Engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 2007 and, PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the Engineering Department, Lancaster University, UK in 2011.

From 2007 to 2008 he was a lecturer to the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Moratuwa and also worked as a visiting lecturer to the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) and the Institution of Engineers (IESL), Sri Lanka. Kelum was successfully appointed to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority doctoral studentship in 2008 at the Engineering Department of Lancaster University. During his PhD project he developed a novel instrument / technique for real-time digital imaging of neutrons and gamma rays in a mixed radiation field (Patent No. GB2484315). In 2010 he was awarded the Faculty of Science and Technology Dean's award of excellence in PhD studies in 2010. He has also been awarded a three-month secondment, during the early second year of his PhD, by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), London. In this placement he worked on the realisation of a compact digital neutron / gamma spectrometer, and studied the optimisation of its performance by reference ISO standard neutron fields.

He is currently supervising 3 full-time PhD students and has authored number of peer-reviewed papers in major international journals. His research interests have financially supported by the EPSRC through the Faculty of Science and Technology Lancaster University, ERDF through the Centre for Global Eco-innovation, Neutron Metrology research group at National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the HW Communications Ltd, the Hybrid Instruments Ltd and the Create Technologies Ltd. He is an active reviewer for Applied Radiation and Isotopes, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A, Radiation Protection Dosimetry. In 2012 he was awarded the Engineering Department’s outstanding academic research award. He is a Chartered Engineer of the Engineering Council (UK), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Member of the IEEE and IET. He is also working with IET as a professional registration advisor (PRA), where advises candidates applying for CEng registration.
